Merry Beth Freienmuth
Yoga Teacher, Teacher Training Faculty & Green Lotus Partner
Merry Beth (Hovey) Freienmuth was introduced to yoga at the YMCA in 2000. She found the physical asana practice was the perfect transition for her aging body that could no longer tolerate a classical ballet practice. After more than fifteen years of practicing and teaching ballet, she began teaching Body Flow, Pilates, and yoga at the YMCA in 2002. The non-asana benefits of yoga gave her the strength and ability to balance a demanding full-time job, raise two children into adulthood, and share her passion for yoga with hundreds of students at the YMCA.
Merry Beth became a partner in Green Lotus in 2009 and in 2013 retired from her corporate position as vice president of marketing for a global franchise company to focus full-time on Green Lotus. She is the director of training for Green Lotus' Registered Yoga School and a core faculty member of the training programs.
Certifications: E-RYT 500; Yoga Fit2, yin, and restorative yoga; mat Pilates, barre, qi gong, tai qi - yang short form, Body Flow, Balletone, Senior Fitness.
Merry Beth enjoys spending time with her family, including three adorable grandchildren, sailing, reading, and, of course, practicing yoga.
